You are Mine.

NEVER ENDING LOVE AFFAIR

 

I have called you by name; you are mine. Isaiah 43:1 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

There are two important facts in this verse.

The first one states that Jehovah calls out to you. No one “finds Jesus” as if it were some effort on their own. Jesus comes to you. Do not be arrogant and take credit for something you did not do. Instead, be eternally grateful every day. Thank Jehovah and Jesus for coming to you, bringing you out of darkness and into their brilliant light of love.

Second: We all belong to something. Perhaps, it is a sports team or a type of music or whatever it may be, there is always something that owns our heart.

For me, Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit own my mind, body and spirit. And, I cannot think of anyone or anything that is more loving and caring than them. It is a great comfort and encouragement knowing that I belong to them.

We are adopted into the most royal family of all. That makes us sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father Jehovah. What an awesome reality. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer : Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for calling out to me from the darkness to come into Your Divine light. Thank you for adopting me into Your Holy family and for the blessing of always being able to commune with my Poppa (You), my big brother (Jesus) and my amazing Guidance Councillor (the Holy Spirit). I exalt You fro these awesome gifts in the name of my big brother Jesus Christ. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

Succeed in This Inconceivable Marvel.

God loves each of

 For ever since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through His workmanship [all His creation, the wonderful things that He has made], so that they [who fail to believe and trust in Him] are without excuse and without defense. Romans 1:20 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever seen anyone that has been touched by Jehovah?

I have.

I have seen drunkards become sober and never touch a drop again. Everything else they attempted to smash the chains of their addiction failed miserably, especially the politically correct that says if you just try hard enough you will succeed. Only Christs power freed them from this horrible slavery. The same can be said of other addictions as well.

I have seen those who were selfish and self centered become very loving, sharing and caring children of Jehovah. Nothing but Christs love could accomplish such a feat.

I have seen shy timid folks become roaring lions for Christ with Divine power and and confidence that astounds those that knew them previously. Nothing but Jehovahs power could accomplish such an impossible feat.

I have seen those that cursed and mocked Jehovahs word now preach it with wisdom and authority that amazes those that knew them previously. Nothing but Jehovahs wisdom could succeed in this inconceivable marvel.

“I believe in God like I believe in the sun rise. Not because I can see it, but because I can see all that it touches.” — C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for the numerous ways in which You have touched me in so many aspects of my life. In the way You burned off the dross and the ways in which You have molded me with expert hands. I exalt You in the name of the best potter ever  Jesus Christ. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

They are going to Have a Feast.

                                     

The eye that mocks a father And scorns a mother, The ravens of the valley will pick it out, And the young vultures will devour it. Proverbs 30:17 Holy Bible Amplified Version

From what I have seen being a live in care giver for my mom and a volunteer at a seniors home I would say they are going to have a feast.

So many of all ages gleefully throw their elderly or handicapped parents into a hell hole called a seniors home. I know most are very good at the level of care they provide but the living environment leaves much to be desired. I have seen many only come to visit when they want money and then treat their mother scornfully (to scorn means open dislike and disrespect or derision often mixed with indignation. To treat them with derision means the use of ridicule to show contempt and contempt means a strong dislike. I have seen many children and grandchildren treat their mothers like they had the plague. And, indignation means to be angry. The children and grandchildren are angry because their mother is still alive because they want her money in their inheritance. To mock means to to treat with contempt or ridicule. I have seen many make fun of their fathers infirmity in their elder years.

I have seen children blackmail their parents “If you want me to come and help you, you have to pay me.” If you want me to bring the grandchildren over you have to give me money.” This is all disgusting in the eyes of the Lord and they shall pay severely.

Now granted many parents were abusive to their children but we are to forgive them, that does not mean we are not to hold them accountable. If they refuse to repent, which means admit what they did, admit it was wrong, apologize and stop doing it, then we are to have nothing to do with them. If reconciliation is not important to them then it should not be important to us.

However to abuse them when they are in need is just as wrong in Jehovahs eyes.

That does not mean ravens will actually pluck out their eyes but that they will pay for their abhorrent behavior.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Abba (God our Father) just as you lovingly care for me instill in my heart a desire and will to be respectful, loving and caring to my parent so as to bring glory to You. I humbly request this in the name of Your most loving, respectful son Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

The Master of Our Passions

“Oh Lord, become the master of our passions, and the creator of our desires.” R. Marklund

Too many times today I hear elderly parents cry that their children and grandchildren have deserted them. The only time they call is when they want money. They are selfish, arrogant and ungrateful.

Who taught them that?

In Asia they are called Little Emperors and Little Empress’. Their mothers and grandmothers spoiled them rotten when they were children. Now they are lazy, arrogant, ungrateful and selfish. They have nothing to do with their parents and grandparents.

Instead of teaching their children love, respect, caring, sharing, and to be appreciative they taught them to whine until they got what they wanted. That they are so special, that happiness comes only from material things. Then they complain because their children grow up to be disrespectful, greedy, shallow, self centered materialistic brats who shun the parents and grandparents.

Most parents and grandparents spent lavishly on these brats while doing without for themselves.

Now they are poor and in need of help. Their children are cold and cold care less.

The parents and grandparents wail about their fate yet it was they themselves who created these monsters.

I was shocked when I returned to Canada from a ten year hiatus of teaching in China to see with disgust the same scenario repeatedly occurring here.

Being a care giver for my elderly mother I hear the same stories from her friends.

Doing volunteer work in a seniors home it is shocking to see and hear it from the residents the neglect of their children and grandchildren. So many of them have been thrown in there to die and never see their children or grandchildren except on Christmas. Yet, they themselves worshipped their children and grandchildren when they were young and now are abandoned by them. The only time they call is when they want money but if the parents or grandparents want any help the children and grandchildren are “too busy” to help.

Perhaps that is why Jehovah tells us to love Him above all others. It is because He loves us more than anyone could or would. He will never abuse us, leave us nor desert us.                                                          

And Jesus replied to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ Matthew 22:37  The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Idols always break the hearts of their worshippers.” C.S.Lewis

Prayer: Please my wonderful Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to always have a heart that is faithful unto You and to worship only You as You are the only one worthy of praise, worship and stewardship. I humbly request this in the name of He who emulates what it is like to be Your Holy child Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

Which Group Do You Belong To?

LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR

There are five groups in every church.

 

There are the wolves.

 

I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock.  Acts 20:29 New International Version

 

These devils lurk about waiting to see a weak moment and pounce on you as they are very judgmental and condemning. They do this to stand on a pedestal to make themselves look righteous at the others expense. They are the most dangerous and destructive of them all. They drive more people from Christ than any of Satan’s minions could ever dream of

 

Then there are the groupies.

One of you says, “I follow Paul”; another, “I follow Apollos”; another, “I follow Cephas”; still another, “I follow Christ.” 1 Corinthians 1:12 New International Version

 

Now even though this refers to denominations it also includes those groupie clubs.

 

 

They are the ones that form little groups and it is an exclusive membership. If you are not say a new mother you are not welcome in their tribe. If you are a new member of a church they ignore you if you try to go over and talk with them. In short, they are the snobs.  They are responsible for one time visitors refusing to return for a second visit and indeed turning their back on Christ.

 

Next comes the tongue wagers.

Without wood a fire goes out; without a gossip a quarrel dies down. Proverbs 26:19 New International Version

These are the deadly parrots that lurk about listening in to other conversations to devour any tidbit they can. Once they grab hold of it they burn the telephone lines up telling anybody and everybody stupid enough to listen to them. They usually mix in a little bit of the truth with a whole bunch of lies. If this can cause trouble for the unfortunate victim all the better. When confronted about their filth they behave like innocent little lambs. They are relationship destroyers. Guard well what you say about them. They destroy more relationship and cause more hard feelings between members than any wrecking ball could to any building.

 

 

Then, comes the ones that are the minority but should be the majority in every church.

 

They are the Christians.

 

 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,  gentleness and self-control. Galatians 5:22 New International Version

 

They are the ones that welcome any newcomers and make them feel at ease and, are always polite and respectable. Before the service they like to share what Jesus has done in their live the past week. After the service they like to talk about what was being said in relation to their walk with Christ. They are the ones that build up the church, both local and international. I am very honoured to be a member of this group and enjoy greatly being with them every opportunity I can.

 

The wolves are usually always attacking these minorities and are responsible for driving them many of them from the church.

 

Which group do you belong to?

 

Prayer: Please Jehovah Yahweh (God of His people) bless me to always conduct myself in thought, word and deed as a respectful child of Yours and guide me to fellowship with other brothers and sister so we can and will worship You in a harmony of love and joy. I sincerely ask this in the name of he who taught His disciples how to fellowship both amongst themselves and You Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

The Best Relationship Advice

GODS FAITHFULNESS

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding Proverbs 3:5 New King James Version

God knows not only you but the other person as well. There are many things in the other person that you do not see but He does. So therefore it is best to always trust Him in any and all relationships.   It will prevent a lot of heartache, frustration and suffering later on in your life.

 

That guy may be a smooth talker but in reality is an abusive jerk. Man have I ever met a lot of them.   Personally I have found those who like to dress in luxuriant styles are snakes in the grass.

 

That woman may appear to be sweet and innocent but in reality she is manipulative, domineering and a self centered emotional thief. They will suck the life out of you quicker that a vacuum cleaner.

 

That person may seem goofy because they are shy but when you talk with them you discover they are very wise. Many of the wisest men and women I have had the privilege to become friends with I at first thought they were are brite as a burnt out light bulb but were very intelligent,caring, respectful, loving and wise.

That person may seem like a snob but in reality is just a loner (just because we are loners does not mean we have mental problems either). I am a loner yet most people consider me very deep, caring and supportive once they get to know me.

Prayer: Please Jesus Rohi (God our Sheppard) guide me towards those who are loving, caring and respectful and away from the life suckers (those who suck the life out of you). I sincerely ask this in the name of He who was open to the loving ones and closed to the lurking wolves Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Does That Answer Your Question?

THE THREE PARTS OF PRAYER

 

These articles are dedicated to the wonderful and amazing way Jehovah Jireh (the Lord our provider) answers prayers. It is a simple journal that I would like to use as an example for others to list their sincere prayer requests and then how our Beloved answers them.                                                                                                                                       

It will amaze you and create a heart of gratitude and respect for our gracious Jehovah Heseh (Our God of love).

Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows James 1:27 New King James Version

It has been three weeks since I did volunteer work at a seniors home because of a flu outbreak.

I prayed to Jehovah to bless me with an answer if they wanted me to return.

That day as mom and I were doing errands she picked up a bundle of community newspapers and took them to the seniors home. I did not know she intended to do this.

As we were delivering the papers I encountered many of the residents and the staff I volunteer with. They were all very happy to see me and the staff informed me that the flu epidemic was over and they want me to return this week.

When I got home there was a feeling like Jehovah saying:” Does that answer your question?”

I laughed and thanked Him for His wonderful way of answering my prayer.

Now I have returned to volunteering at the seniors home and we are all very glad things have gotten back to “normal”.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our Healer) for healing those sick in the seniors home and thank you that I can at long last return to serving you there to bring glory to Your marvelous name. I exalt you in the name of He who healed Peters sick mother Jesus Christ. Amen.
